Customizations to Help Personalize Your RedTree Products
Personalize the cover of your products with standard debossing, using one of our six in-house fonts, or with custom debossing, for a truly custom cover.
Make an incredible first impression, and offer a peak inside your RedTree Albums (limited to this product) with a cameo window on your cover.
Choose from one of our three debossing tiers to personalize your covers. Our default style for each tier is blind debossing, meaning no color or foil is added to the impression. Foil debossing is available exclusively on our Luxe Linen covers, in gold, rose gold, and silver.
Standard debossing is our base-level debossing option. We offer 6 fonts, which include serif and sans-serif, and five placement options. You can choose up to two lines of phrasing. When placing your order, type eXacTly what you want us to deboss – we can accommodate all caps, all lowercase, or a combination of the two. Please note: certain characters are not possible to deboss, we will notify you of any issues.
RedTree Debossing Collection
With the RedTree Debossing Collection, you can offer 16 semi-custom designs for your covers without needing to do any design work before placing an order. Options include script fonts, bold fonts, and various unique design elements.
Unlike Standard Debossing, which is case sensitive, Debossing Collection designs will appear exactly as the designs are presented (all caps, all lowercase, etc.). To request a special accommodation regarding case sensitivity, or a change to any design, please inquire with our team when placing your order.
Note: The designs featuring small text, or intricate details below do not appear well on our Standard Leather covers. Also, certain characters are not available in some fonts. Please reach out to our team for more information.
For a truly unique cover, you can create a custom die for each album on your own, in Photoshop. This is a great way to use the same font or design elements that you use in your branding, or for couples who have a custom design elements from their wedding (invitations, programs, et al.). We offer two sizes for custom debossing – small designs measure 4×2 inches and large designs measure 7×3 inches – and five placement options.

Our albums & books are debossed by hand. This gives us complete control in every situation. Materials react differently to various fonts and custom designs, and our handcrafted process allows us to tailor each album impression.
Blind Debossing Appears Differently on Some Covers
Some Luxe Leathers show a slightly darker tone in areas that are debossed (this is primarily seen on Alpine), while black Luxe Leathers do not reveal as visible of an impression (this is most noticeable on Suede Noir, Storm and Charcoal). We do not recommend Blind Debossing on the Onyx Luxe Linen.
Custom Debossing Designs
The best Custom Debossing designs are made from clean, clear lines. Please avoid painterly designs, and they can come across as messy and muddy. And, be cautious when using extra thin fonts, as they can be difficult to read on materials with more texture.
Debossing Text Length
Be mindful of the size of your album relative to the length of your debossing text. Lengthy text may look great on a 12×12 album, but overbearing on an 8×8 album. Leaving some negative space on your cover is important, just like an album spread.
Using Cameos and Debossing Simultaneously
Keep it simple. Using cameos and debossing simultaneously can sometimes be distracting. When choosing to use them together, please reference the placement options for both debossing and cameo windows. If you have questions, please contact us to discuss what it is you have in mind.
With the one time purchase of a die of your logo, we will keep your studio die in-house, and you can choose to brand the back cover your albums and books with your logo, for free… forever. All other RedTree products can be personalized with a studio die for a $10 fee.
To order a studio die, you can start by converting your logo to black and white (with black being the area that will be debossed). Size it to the exact size you would like it to be on the album, and ensure it is 300 DPI. Generally, dies look best between 2-3 inches wide. Once your design is ready, you can upload your studio die in a vector format, or as a high resolution JPG.
Cameos are a simple and affordable way to upgrade your RedTree Album covers (limited to this product). Selecting the right photo and matching color tones on the cover can make for an incredible first impression. View cameo window placement options here.
